Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan
​​ Your Vision
         Our Future
Welcome to the website of the Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan

According to Rother District Council’s development plans, Crowhurst MUST have at least 20 new housing units. Without a Neighbourhood Plan villagers will have no say on where this new housing goes or on what kind of housing is built. A Neighbourhood Plan gives the village power to influence the type and location of new housing. It also creates an organisation that can access funds for future village development that would otherwise not be available to us. This affects everybody living in the village so please get involved by coming to the next meeting or contacting us. You can contribute, raise concerns or just listen and learn more about what we all need to do.

The Neighbourhood Plan Vision is to maintain the village’s rural character by protecting the countryside and environment around its boundaries, promoting community spirit and enhancing infrastructure, facilities and services for residents of all ages. This vision was endorsed by 98% of respondents in our first consultative village survey held in July 2016. 




The Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan, Regulation 14, DRAFT Pre-submission Consultation 
will take place between 16th January and 28th February. 
During this period, we want to:
Show you the Draft Plan
Give you a chance to ask questions
Get your feedback
If the plan is to succeed, your input is VITAL so please come to one of our events. These are as follows: 

9.00am - 11.00am in the coffee shop at St. Georges Church 

10.00am - 2.00pm in the Village Hall (During and after the the Village Market)


10.00am - 4.00pm in the Village Hall

You can give us your feedback during these events by filling in a comments form or you can send your feedback via the website (link to page below and also in main menu above). 
At the bottom of the 'Regulation 14, Consultation Documents' page you will find a short feedback form and for more substantial or multiple  comments a downloadable document. 

'Regulation14, Consultation Documents'

All comments MUST be received by 28th February and must include your name and contact details. All comments will then be reviewed and any necessary amendments to the plan made before a final version is submitted to Rother District Council and a further (Regulation 16) consultation. A document outlining how each comment was dealt with will also be published at this time.

Other News and Important Dates

We still need your help with pictures. So keep sending your photos (and paintings!) of the Parish and the Village. 
Please send them with info about where it is (if not very obvious) and with a name credit/source for the photo.
We are also compiling a list of interesting buildings around the Parish - old or new. If there are any buildings that you think fit this, please let us know. A photo would be great if possible, along with where the building is and why you think it is interesting.
